UK long range weather forecast

Generally fine and dry on Saturday, with sunny spells and patchy fair-weather clouds, possibly bringing some showers across the northeast, as well as some rain across the southwest. Gusty winds and possible coastal gales remain likely in the southwest, preventing frosts here; lighter winds elsewhere maintains the frost risk for much of the UK. High pressure is expected to dominate, meaning most places will remain dry and bright, with some morning fog patches in places where winds are light. Temperatures are gradually returning to average, warming slightly by day, although overnight frosts remain probable in rural areas and in the north. The greatest potential for rain and stronger winds is likely across the south and southwest, although confidence decreases into the beginning of May.


Mixed weather patterns, typical of spring are most likely through the first half of May. Overall, fine and dry weather is expected to be most dominant, with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells. However, all areas are likely to see some showers or perhaps some longer spells of rain at times, with these unsettled periods more likely than they were in April. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average for the time of year, with the possibility of some warmer spells.
